What about adding this text to the Terminology section of the draft?

   <t>"QNAME": it is defined in <xref target="RFC1034"/> and
   in <xref target="RFC1035"/>, section 4.1.2, but, because <xref
   target="RFC2308"/> provides a different definition, we repeat the
   original one here: the QNAME is the owner name of the record in the
   Question section.</t>
